Career Highlights: It’s only been just over a year since I picked up a guitar for the first time at my free introductory lesson but I honestly think the biggest highlight has been actually realising how talented all the guitar players in my favourite bands are and gaining even more appreciation for music in general.
What do you love about The Guitar Gym?: I like learning to play the guitar with Matt’s help. We’re into the same types of music and he really helps to make it easy to learn new skills, riffs, and songs.
